Serology

Detection of rising titers of IgG between acute and convalescent stages of infection, or the detection of IgM in primary infection.

Criteria for diagnosing Primary Infection

  • 4 fold or more increase in titer of IgG or total antibody between acute and convalescent sera

  • Presence of IgM

  • Seroconversion

  • A single high titer of IgG (or total antibody) - very unreliable

    Criteria for diagnosing Reinfection

  • 4 fold or more increase in titer of IgG or total antibody between acute and convalescent sera

  • Absence or slight increase in IgM
